    Story
    "Needed More 'Imagine-Nation'...Zzzzzz"

    Rolled the dice again, and got this. Let's treat it like a flu shot, and get it over with QUICK.

    Well, it's somewhat interesting, but not note-worthy.

    A hodge-podge of super-heroes, villains, ninjas, mad-scientists, tech-warriors, and a zombie/borg-like enemy, all pursuing a young boy who will someday possibly turn evil and rule them all.

    Good premise, but light on plot, soft on delivery. Not much to say, ultimately.

    This is one of three in the series, and none of them fare better than the first. The author didn't grow much through the series. The narrator was better than the material.

    It's a shame, but I have to call them as I see them. Sorry, Matt. This could have been so much more.

    Avoid all three of these audiobooks.

    Story
    "Hooked from the beginning!"
    What did you love best about Jack Blank and Imagine Nation?

    As a parent I loved the fact that this story kept all three of my kids engaged! The story contained humor, action, but also has a heart. Jack is an orphan and his feelings are addressed in the book. Great opportunity to talk to the kids about real stuff.


    What other book might you compare Jack Blank and Imagine Nation to and why?

    Of course there are Harry Potter comparisons in regards to the fact that he's an orphan, brought back to a new world where fantastical things happen, and he has power that he can't imagine or control... But the Jack Blank story is it's own creation with a world that my kids thoroughly enjoyed.


    What about Norbert Leo Butz’s performance did you like?

    Loved the performance!


    Any additional comments?

    We would highly recommend this story for kids and their parents to enjoy together. At the time of listening my kids were 11, 9, and 7 years old. Very fun listen which resulted in us getting the whole trilogy.

    Story
    "Just not good"

    For the most part, my 10 year old was bored with this book. There were brief periods that she showed interest in the story, but they were very, very brief.

    As a parent, listening to this was painful. The characters are shallow, the narration is overly earnest (like someone might speak to a 3 year old), and the action drags along. There is, of course, a child trying to win against adults in this story--but nothing Jack does makes me think he *should* win against the adults. He does not go through any real struggle--rather, everything just seems to fall into his lap by luck or else because kind adults were looking out for him. This might be good for very young children that don't question magic and superheroes, but if you have a kid that likes a smart story, this one is not for you.

    Admittedly, I only made it halfway through the story, but I seriously wish I could get my time back.

    Story
    "Great for my 10 year old son"

    From my son: This book has good imagination. Lots of cliffhangers and action.

    My son couldn't put this book down. He loved it and is excited to get the next book in the series.

    "Exciting Super Hero"

    If you like super heroes you'll like this story. Jack Blank has many twists and turns. I am looking forward to the next book.
